Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

Here’s an example of how far Escher Girls predate Todd McFarlane and Greg Land. The picture is from the original run of the B&W Vampirella magazine published by Warren. It’s from issue #3, which came out in January of 1969. The artist is listed as Jack Sparling.
Sideways broken spine unicorn. Ick.

Tetris girls, now in classic retro style.
